We can be heroes just for one day

I love jazz spots in London, even more if it’s a local band playing in a pub. That’s the case of The Fallen Heroes, they are the residents of The Blue Post, a traditional English pub, home cooked food including Sunday roast, good selection of beers including ales, pretty packed when the band is playing every Sunday from 4 to 8pm. Free admission, so no cover, however, as soon as you get to the pub Angie the bouncer will make sure you get a drink if you want to stay to enjoy the music. 

The place
Inside
A 5 piece band as they were playing that night, Sax, Trombone, Guitar, Bass, and Drums. From time to time let guest musicians to perform with them. The Martyn brothers founded the Heroes, they grew up in NOLA and after 10 years playing there they came back to London to play a funky jazz with some ska and blues into the mix giving a unique and characteristic sound.

So be prepared to enjoy good music, have a pint, and if you fancy even jump while the band is playing The Monkey. 

Groupies
Monkey reminds me the Seinfeld episode “The Face Painter” 

Kramer: Hey, Jerry? You're a smart guy, right? 
Jerry: No question about it 
Kramer: Alright, you know I'm supposed to go on this special tour today with George's girlfriend 
Jerry: At the zoo? 
Kramer: Yeah, but before I met up with her, I stopped to look at the monkeys, when all of a sudden I am hit in the face with a banana peel. I turn and look and there is this monkey really laughing it up. Then someone tells me that he did it. Well, I pick up the banana peel and I wait for that monkey to turn around. And then I let him have it 
Jerry: Kramer, you threw a banana peel at a monkey? 
Kramer: Well, he started it! 
Jerry: It's a monkey, Kramer! 
Kramer: Well, he pushed my buttons, I couldn't help it, Jerry 
Jerry: Well, I still think it's wrong 
Kramer: Alright, alright, fine. You take the monkey's side, alright, go ahead
